Yeah, I remember that, the Ol was first by about a few seconds over 30 miles of running 8 footers. It's just too bad that Bob Hennif's Fountain did'nt have equal power. Now, that would've been something to watch.


I suppose you were right with them so you know how close everyone was. It was more like minutes. And you sound like you know alot about boats. So are you saying that in big water more horsepower is better. I 've always thought that it was a equalizer at least that is the only time I have been able to run with the fast cats. I guess my point is that I am sure last year during the poker run you ran your boats best speed ever in the rough

Bring it to Grand Lake 8-11 or the LOTO Shoot out!! My boat can't be loud at LOTO. Sorry if I offended anybody. Thanks for the loudest boat award. What did you say.

Don't make this into an argument of "E-dock vs. OL" or "Fountain vs. OL"...it's not that at all.
Good point Mike. I think I can speak for most of the E-dock guys and certainly for myself. First of all we all had a blast at the run in Chicago. Secondly we really like the OL guys and the way they run their boats. Most of them really like to run hard and that makes it fun for some of us. They will be at Sarasota, Key West and many others as we have all been for many years in the past and we look forward to a great time as usual. PS I think that was my longest post ever. I won't do it again. Peace!!

Your boat sounded awsome. I was idling by when you started up and what a great sound.

You definitely deserved that award.

I don't know, all this power we had a hell of a great time with 500 EFI's and bravo's. We just loved getting some air once or twice The E-Dock boats were cool just wish I could have a ride in one of them.
Frank 10X it was nice to talk to you also. Hope we can get down once more this summer.

If anyone has a pic of us getting air I sure would like one for my wall. Thanks

Unhappy

I wish Boyne had not been the same weekend also. I understand they had to move their dates because of SOTW. They picked our weekend and I am still Okay with that.

This is what I had a problem with from the Poker Run Section:

This is how we found out we had lost a helicopter that was promised to us. The Art Of Design had volunteered the use of their Helicopter to fly the Hotboat Magazine Photographer at the 2007 Chicago Poker Run. In return TAOD was given a sponsorship for this years event. It worked out great last year as Dean did a great job flying EBM at the event. As promised we had the TAOD logo on our shirt. We counted on that Helicopter and it wasn't there. No phone call.....nothing.

We are a non-for profit club trying to raise money for Children's Memorial Hospital.

Wow I did not mean to open a can of worms regarding what poker runs OL decides to attend. I am surprised that a company like OL would leave you guys in a jam like that over the helicopter, especially with no notice.

In reference to the dates Ysbert it is correct, I spoke to JBoyne later today and he told me that Marc (SOTW) called him very early in the year and asked him if they could change their date because July 4th was on a Wednesday and he could not get a permit from Grand Haven for the first weekend in July like in past years. Unfortuantely Boyne could not be run the last weekend in July since it is Venetian Festival on the Lake. Out of respect for the older established run they let SMOKE have their original date. So that left them with the 3rd weekend in July, they felt their run is smaller and would not be as much of a conflict with Chicago as it would be if it was the same weekend as SMOKE. 08 looks like it will be the same again, Marc hopes to run SMOKE and wants the second weekend since July 4th is on a Friday and Chicago (according to Mark Smith) will rightfully hold their event on the third weekend. So Boyne either has to run the same weekend as SMOKE or Chicago or move their run to August, which the city does not really want to do. Lake MI has so much to offer in boating and we have so many locations that are perfect for poker runs, the big problem is our summer is just to darn short to spread them out

I did not choose to get in the middle of anything. I'm the treasurer for the club and therefore am the guy who writes the checks and that puts me in the middle of it. Outerlimits' act was very unprofessional and the ones who ultimately pay for their choice is a charity. As far as my comments regarding Boyne, I was just answering a question raised about why we were on the same date. I truly hope the runs are on separate dates in the future so people have a chance to do both, though I'm not certain my liver could handle it.
